well, lets call these pieces a and b. So, we get: 72 = a + b Now, we want one piece be 5 times longer than the other, that is: a=5b ------------------------------- your system of equations is: 72=a+b a=5b solve for a and b pliz.
36

You needed to find a and b (separately). I helped you model a system of equations to do this. 72=a+b a=5b
can you tell me the value of a individually, and the value of b individually?
its 36 for a seperatly and 36 for b
